A Note from the Program
The Department of Anthropology invites graduate student applicants interested in pursuing an MA in Anthropology whose research interests complement existing areas of faculty expertise. Our students routinely secure internal seed monies from the Department, and other USC centers and programs (e.g. the Walker Institute) to support their research. Masters students enjoy a high rate of post-USC degree placement.
